Falling in love with a school, a campus and its surroundings are some things that will over rule a coaching change.
That’s exactly what happened for California three star wide receiver Bryce Bobo.
Bobo recently visited with BuffPlayBook.com to explain his recruitment and why he ended up becoming a CU Buff.
Bobo committed to the previous staff and admits he was a little nervous when the coaching change went down.
“Yes I was a little nervous at first,” Bobo said. “Other coaches from other schools started contacting me after the coaching change and tried to sway me from being a Buff.”
According to Bobo, it was his official visit to Boulder that sealed the deal for him.
“After that visit it changed my whole view about Colorado,” Bobo said. “I had already fell in love with the campus, but after meeting the new coaching staff, I told all those other coaches that were calling no thanks, Colorado was the school for me.”
Several things stood to Bobo about the new coaching staff.
“You could tell that they truly cared about you as a person, not just a football player,” Bobo said. “With Coach (Mike) MacIntyre as a mentor you can tell its important to him to help make us a better person. It’s like a big family, that’s the way it was at my high school, I really felt comfortable at Colorado, it was home.”
Bobo, a 6-foot-3, 196-pound wide out, had official offers from Colorado and Idaho, but several schools came calling after the coaching change.
According to Bobo, the Colorado coaching staff is expecting Bobo to come in ready to play.
“It’s my goal to come in and contribute as much as I can my freshman year,” Bobo said. “They told me to be ready physically and mentally to compete for a position.”
